I would recommend this foundation if you have problem skin. Such as acne, uneven skin tone, scars, etc. for me this is just too heavy and cakey. I'm at the point where less is more for me. I do like the the fact that this foundation is very long lasting. Great coverage. I just prefer a more natural coverage. The price is great and it's comparable to any high end foundations out there. If you prefer to look more natural this will not work for you. Also doesn't work well on oily skin. I have very oily skin and this only exaggerated it. Also the packaging is disappointing, I think a pump is the only way to go. Hope this was helpful :)

I have never liked cover girl foundation but this is a rare find. I have oily skin skin and this has become my go-to foundation. I just finished the makeup forever hd and wasn't impressed enough to repurchase. I decided to give this a go because of the reviews and great price. It doesn't disappoint. Goes on nicely, helps control my oil throughout the day, and stays put. The price is a steal and it's very convenient to find. My only complaint would be the that it does seem to settle into my pores a bit, which is not attractive. Also its hard to color match with drugstore foundation. But overall it is comparable to just about any high end foundation out there, and believe me I have tried me all. Have been using about a month and will repurchase at this point.

Okay so I have very oily skin, not combo just oily all over. Not particular acne -prone, I have a breakout here and there just hormonal. I have to say I hate wearing foundation, I just don't like having a bunch of stuff on my face, I prefer my skin to breathe. So I like high end products usually but this tinted moisturizer is my favorite. I've been using this for almost a year and I am on my second tube. It costs around $12 at Target. It does not control my oil but also does not exacerbate it. It gives just the right amount of coverage while doing double duty as a moisturizer. I prefer this to a bb cream because they are just too oily for me. I have tried high end tinted moisturizer but this one seems to do the job just fine. Also has an SPF and color range suites me perfect. I have olive toned skin and the color honey works during summer and winter both. I have and will repurchase again :)
This product made me so mad. First off, the price made me nervous because it's a hit or miss with these things. The first day I used it I realized the product inside was broken and it fell out out, which there goes half the product. This made me so furious I didn't care if it worked or not. It then continued to break piece by piece every time I used it. I'm not sure if mine was defective or what? I have always used a brow pencil from the drugstore which is around $5 and it never failed me, i just decided to branch out and try this because my brows are my thing and I thought maybe I could improve them. $25 later and what a waste! The color was good and it stayed in place throughout the day, but those are the only positives. The packaging was just way to disappointing. Will not repurchase.

Just an average foundation. If you are craving this and expecting it to be a miracle, don't be silly, it is nothing special. I have oily skin, and I like a medium to full coverage. I guess I wanted a foundation that would make me look completely flawless on special occasions and this one seemed to have the most reviews claiming that it would. It is not any different from other foundation, For $ 40 it should be somewhat better, but its not. it doesn't control your oil, it settles into any pores or fine lines, and make me more oily throughout the day. The only positive is the packaging. I honestly prefer a tinted moisturizer to this. I will try the matte velvet plus next, but I won't repurchase this one.
This blush is way over-hyped. Sure it's a cute color but it so totally dupable it's ridiculous. I splurged on this because I felt like I was missing out but after I had it a few months I never reached for it again. It just sits ion my vanity collecting dust. I just prefer so many other blushes over this one. I'm most upset I spent so much for a blush when I use my cheaper ones everyday. On top of that I opened it one day and it had shattered into pieces, what a waste for something I didn't even love. Won't repurchase.

I got a sample of this and I was really excited to try it since I've heard so much about it. I also didn't want to purchase it because it is quite expensive. The smell was a shock. I thought maybe I got a bad batch until I read the reviews. It is nothing special. Not particularly moisturizing, just average. But the smell for me was unbearable and a definite deal breaker. Will not purchase
